VFW Post 5620 in Carthage has been named an all-American post for the 2018-19 year by the international organization headquartered in Kansas City, Mo.

Fewer than two percent of the VFW’s 8,600 posts are selected for this honor based on membership growth and participation in community events. Commander James McDaniel and Quartermaster Colin Broadus were cited for their leadership during the past year.

McDaniel and Broadus were also recognized at the VFW’s state convention held last month in Houston. The post was named an all-state post to become eligible for all-American consideration.

Post 5620 invites all eligible men and women veterans to join the organization. Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at the post located at 410 N. Live Oak St. For more information, contact the post at (903) 693-2975.
